Blues: Make up your mind on Ken Hitchcock

I could just be confused, but wasn’t it Doug Armstrong, General Manager of the St. Louis Blues who said back in September that the head coaching job was Ken Hitchcock’s until the coach decided he didn’t want it. If that’s so, then why does every comment from Hitchcock sound like a man waiting in a green room for the director to call his name to the set? What is going on...

Blues, Predators Need To Shake It Up

It was a disappointing end to a strong season for both the St. Louis Blues and the Nashville Predators. Sadly, this seems to be the headline after every season in recent years. Both teams put together strong regular season finishing first and second in the division respectively, but failed to make a run in the postseason once again.

Hitchcock said that Allen is a young guy who is learning and the team has to stick with him. Approximately 30 seconds and another soft goal later...
